I've had one of the original WR602's that came as part of a weather station WRB308z for the last 7 years. All I have had to do with the radio is set the time and date and pick my state and county and it enters the S.A.M.E county code for me. At least I don't have to track it down on the NOAA site! I get the weekly test and when we've had weather alerts on the Oregon Coast and the Tsunami warning the weather radio alerted my family.
